A powerfully-built left-arm seamer, Kabir Khan made his Test and one-day debut on the tour of Sri Lanka in 1994-95, and went on to make 10 one-day appearances over the next six seasons without every being able to command a regular run in the side. He did little wrong - his economy rate was respectably under four-an-over - but lacked penetration. That was also his problem in his Test outings - he took 5 for 223 in his last two Tests against Zimbabwe - and he was discarded after four games in less than a season.
